Rep. Jerry Chang introduces Cora Lee Matsui, widow of Jack Matsui, founder of the Big Island Sports Hall of Fame

Rep. Jerry Chang (District 2 - South Hilo) is president of the Big Island Sports Hall of Fame. This past Saturday, May 22nd, a wall with photos of 144 Big Island sports legends was re-dedicated at the Prince Kuhio Plaza in Hilo.

The wall had been out of public sight for two years when the shopping plaza used the wall space for another purpose. KTA Superstores is donating $5,000 a year to keep the wall up, and donations from other in the community help to maintain the photos and other activities.

Many of the inductees, their families and friends, attended the ceremony. Watch the ceremony and comments from the attendees in a video from Big Island Video News . Click here.
